Each university sets its own calendar. Some have semesters and summer sessions. Some have quarters. Some have semesters and a short “winter term” between semesters and a short summer session.
Most full-time students take about 12-18 credit hours per semester. Each credit hour usually means about one hour spent in class and two or more hours spent working and studying independently outside of class. Each course is usually one to five credit hours, the average is about three. So A student taking five 3-credit hour courses would be taking fifteen credit hours.
Each professor decides how he or she will assess student performance and assign grades. There may be homework, quizzes, short papers, essays, term papers, tests, lab reports, other assignments, or exams, but probably not all of those in one course.

They are very dissimilar.
There being 2 main semesters is about the only similarity.
